May 22 UPDATE – 11 COVID Cases Linked To Abbotsford Regional Hospital

Abbotsford – MAY 22 UPDATE – Over the past week, the number of COVID cases at Abbotsford Regional Hospital went from one to none to 11. Now it is important to note that ARH is a designated treatment centre for people in the region who are diagnosed with COVID-19. The breakdown between patients and front line staff is not yet clear.

In their May 22 joint statement, Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, and Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.’s provincial health officer also noted: “Public health teams continue to provide support for community outbreaks at the Mountain Institution and Mission Institution – both federal corrections facilities, at the Oppenheimer Group, facilities in the poultry sector and with those connected to the Kearl Lake plant in Alberta.”

This is an ongoing investigation by the Fraser Health Authority. In total, 15 long-term care or assisted-living facilities and five acute-care units have active cases.

MAY 15 Original Story – Abbotsford Regional Hospital now has to deal with an outbreak of COVID-19. In her Friday May 15 statement to the Province, Dr. Bonnie Henry noted: “There has been one new acute-care outbreak at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital. In total, 15 long-term care or assisted-living facilities and five acute-care units have active cases.

News1130 Updated the numbers on Friday night:

“Public health teams are also continuing to provide support for community outbreaks in the poultry sector, at the Mission Institution and with those connected to the Kearl Lake plant in Alberta.

This comes as the Province goes into a Long Weekend and officials hold their collective breath that a spike in cases does not follow those that will travel regardless of the plea to stay at home and self-isolate.
